At Heston Blumenthal´s Hyde Park restaurant, the food is the star, it really is photogenic. So beautiful that it is almost a shame to eat it.

The ambience is calm and relaxing, yet very sophisticated. There is something quite special about being walked through the menu by your deeply knowledgeable waiter. Then having a sommelier help you to choose the wine.

There is plenty of theatre too. The kitchen is behind floor to ceiling glass, so there is the opportunity for captivating shots. Especially of the unique pulley system, they use to spit-roast meat over an open fire. When you face the other way, you get to enjoy uninterrupted views of Hyde Park.

Where: 40 Rathbone Place, Fitzrovia, W1T 1HX

Circolo is described by many as a Sicilian trattoria. As you would expect, the food is Italian, very Italian, but with a twist. The authentic Carbonara is served in a pecorino wheel. Their truffle caciocavallo and parmigiana cheese crocchettes are called Everyday I´m Trufflin¨. A zany approach to the menu that is very much reflected in the décor.

To say that the interior of this Fitzrovia restaurant is unique is an understatement. The walls are lined with 20,000 bottles of booze from around the world. In the summer, you can eat al fresco on their traditional Sicilian terrace. But even when you eat inside you feel like you are outdoors. The ceiling is carpeted by a densely packed combination of lights, flowers, and deep green leaves.

This Central London Spanish restaurant is a treat for the senses. Its chic, contemporary interior which has a stunning vaulted ceiling and white mosaic flooring, gives way to a stunning terrace that offers a unique view of the city.

The modern Spanish menu is inspired by the country’s tapas tradition. As the seasons change so does the choice of small Spanish plates. So, there is always something new to photograph and share. But their exquisitely presented signature dishes, like beef short rib and spiced crab tostados, are available year-round.

Ave Mario is on the doorstep of Covent Garden. When you step into its rich, scarlet interior you are enveloped by a feeling of warmth. Once seated in one of their banquette booths you can really appreciate how unique the décor is. Large arched mirrors create endless fascinating photo ops. The stripped walls and large ceiling lights add to the multilayered Italian interior that was inspired by the Duomo di Siena.

The courtyard style backroom is photogenic too. Its authentic terracotta flooring and cane chairs work together to create a warm Tuscan feel.

The food is Italian, with a capital I. It is all made on a grand scale. The Biga pizza, giant carbonara and 60cm tall Gelato Towers are an Instagram foodie’s dream.

The Ivy Asia St Paul´s is glitz and glamour on an amazing scale. Its stunning blossom tree is a popular subject for Instagrammers. But the opportunities to create beautiful shots are endless. Ornate dragons snake their way across the ceiling, and Japanese vignettes and glass etchings decorate the walls. But it is the vibrant green floor that really catches the eye.

The ornately upholstered banquettes and silk cushions are comfortable as well as beautiful to look at. Under the afaux tiled roof, there is a snap worth gold mirrored bar.

As you would expect the food is Asian. Refreshingly, it is simply presented on understated sophisticated plates.

Chelsea´s 50Cheyne´s crisp white and blue exterior gives no clue of the plush rich interior that awaits you. The main high-ceilinged room is on the first floor. It has a sophisticated, yet slightly chintzy vibe going on. The huge floral arrangements really make the room pop. They change regularly, so there is always something fresh to photograph.

Upstairs, things are far brighter, zany even. The low bar is fronted in plush red hexagons, with modern bar chairs that have been upholstered in bright colors.

The food is mostly British, and the portions are huge.

The Juno rooms with its eclectic mix of chairs and richly upholstered palm print banquettes are one of the City of London´s most popular restaurants. In the daylight, it has a crisp, modern feel, which is nicely broken up here and there by a faux blossom tree and ivy hanging around the edge of the main dining areas.

At night, the ambience warms up, considerably. Clever lighting transforms the place and creates some amazing photo opportunities. The brightly lit bar appears to float in the center of the softly lit room.
